(HealthDayNews) -- Have you stopped snacking on nuts because you've heard they're too fatty, caloric, and salty? Well, take heart.

According to the University of California, Berkley, studies have shown that nuts can help prevent coronary disease.

They're rich in unsaturated fats, vitamin E, fiber, folic acid, and other B vitamins. And walnuts are especially rich in heart-healthy oil.

So dig in, but choose the unsalted variety and, as with any food, enjoy them in moderation.
